They are an amalgamation of ideas, scenes, situations, and people I experienced with a heavy dose of imagination.

I'm truly surprised at how many of my characters turn out. I live with them while I'm writing and in many cases, I feel like a method actor. After I'm finished with a book, I feel like I know them better than their therapist would.

Thanks for asking! Feel free to ask more questions.(less)

Hey friends, I hope you are all prepared for spring! I'm busily writing a baseball romance, Playing for the Save, and doing some spring cleaning. The weather is finally warming up in my neck of the woods and flowers are blooming. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that one of my Christmas sets is about to go away.

I love reading about Asian characters in romance. This set satisfies in that aspect, although Ayala's heroines are often sharply drawn and difficult to relate to/cheer for. For example, why Amy (Roaring Ho..." Read more of this review »

The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan
“You can never be an artist if your work comes without effort. That is the problem with modern ink from a bottle. You do not have to think. You simply write what is swimming on the top of your brain. And the top is nothing but pond scum, dead leaves, and mosquito spawn. But when you push an inkstick along an inkstone, you take the first step to cleansing your mind and your heart. You push and you ask yourself, What are my intentions? What is my heart that matches my mind?”

Rachelle Ayala July 17, 2012: Michal's Window is 99c on Nook at Barnes and Noble Online


Rachelle Ayala Broken Build (Silicon Valley Romantic Suspense) is now live on Amazon for 99c [special introductory price]


Rachelle Ayala I thank everyone who's read and reviewed my books. If you have a paperback you don't need or want anymore, please feel free to put it on Ebay or Amazon so others can buy it used. I've had some readers ask me for paperbacks, but obviously it's too expensive for me to buy everyone who wants a book and ship it. So please, go ahead and resell what you have if you won it in a Giveaway or were given one to review. Unless, of course, no one can tear them from your fingers because you love it so much. :)
